The Fishing
Marlin Fishing, South East Queensland. Great fishing is available right offshore, from small black marlin and sailfish, to striped and blue marlin further offshore. With huge areas of canyons only 20 miles off the coast for a hundreds of miles , we have the opportunity to fish an area known for its number and quality of blue, black and striped marlin, which along with yellowfin tuna and swordfish, gives an exciting opportunity to fish for a variety of species.
North East Queensland. Townsville
The capital of Far North Queensland and the destination for small black marlin and sailfishing off Cape Bowling Green in the months of August and early September. Tackle is primarily 12-20 lb conventional, and fly tackle is also a really fun and viable option, for catching these 40-100lb baby black marlin. the sails run up to 150lbs, which is a bunch of fun on light tackle. As many as 36 small blacks have been caught in a single day!!!
Cairns - Lizard Island. more marlin over 1000lbs have been weighed or tagged and released than every other place in the world combined. With the past few seasons experiencing incredible fishing with 3-5 or more bites per day, the next few years will again prove why Cairns is the number 1 destination on every anglers list of BIG FISH places. The TRADITION is based out of Lizard Island and the famous No:10 Ribbon Reef in the early part of the season, and roaming and mother shipping wherever its on
We primarily fish circle hooks in our baits, and single hook rigs in our lures. We practice tag and release with Billfish Foundation tags on our fish, unless the fish is to be weighed. We carry our own IGFA certified scales for any record fishing. We only use the finest tackle and crew available to make your experience one of excellence. With many days booked already, now is the time to make that trip of a lifetime (or year, as many of our clients do fish with us every year) to experience great
